Thanks. Excellent tea. Now how about we discuss something like Sexual Politics and Semantics like two of the members are doing in the Politix Forum? Wink

Supposedly the Admins opened this subforum to attract spammers so they could ban their IPs. Seems like we caught a different type of fly entirely. Mostly CoS flies. wink

Ah, to be a fly on the wall when people are discussing you! uhh!

You're right, Sirius, we made this a Public subforum in the hope that spammers would post here, reveal their IPs, and we could ban them, being sure they were spammers instead of banning genuine members by mistake. Well, it didn't work out that way. In the couple of years this subforum's been up, there's been something like 3 or 4 spammers caught this way. Laughing

Some "guests" have abused the possiblity of posting without registering. It will no longer be possible from now on. Like the rest of AV, this subforum is now for registered members only.

Guests may read the posts, but they may not post themselves unless they register.

That "fly on the wall" thing is a double-edged sword. I remember when he first came in Lani didn't want certain posts or threads to be visible only to members of certain usergroups. I humoured him and left everything public. He (and everyone else) could read everything, and they got more than they bargained for. Ah well. Live and learn. Confused

BTW, we still don't have usergroups (the equivalent of Social Groups on CoS) but I'm considering the possibility. Maybe I'll do something about it once I'm back from France, I'm leaving next week and won't be back until mid-July. I'll still come in here, though, but I won't have as much time for Admin duties. bleh

And a very warm welcome to you, my friend!! wave hello goodbye

The ropes aren't difficult to learn, they're pretty much the same in every chat site. Our rules are less strict and our Mods more easy-going than certain other sites wink , that's all! Very Happy

Any new member is welcome, and doubly so if he or she is a Harry Potter fan! So, to Mr. Watch. super grin

BTW, what exactly do you watch? wonder

They're scattered all over the place. The present thread here is more visible because it's a "sticky" and stays on top of the page. But there are welcome messages in the Meet and Greet Pub, in this subforum a little farther down (where we were welcoming the BSG fans) and sometimes following the new member's first post.

We're not very well-organized as far as sorting out Welcome messages are concerned. super grin

This sub-forum has lost its original purpose. It has somehow become the rallying point for Harry Potter fans. The Admins therefore decided to rename it L'Avenue Harry Potter, one of the main thoroughfares in the Potterverse! Very Happy
